On November 26th the Fair Park gates are open to all those celebrating the Christmas season at MetroPCS Fair Park Holiday!! The FREE holiday festival, great for the entire fam, will feature shopping at the Holiday Gift Market, crafts at Santa’s Workshop, the official City of Dallas tree lighting, dancing water shows and more. What’s a DFW event without some fireworks? Fair Park can’t have a big program without them, so enjoy rooftop fireworks (sponsored by Gold Metal Recyclers) at Fair Park Holiday as well! Thousands of sparkly LED lights will surround the Esplanade Fountain where a beautiful “dancing water” show will take place choreographed to Christmas music and popular classics. In addition to that you can enjoy Free OR reduced admission to all of the participating museums at select times.
Fair Park Holiday 2011, hosted by Friends of Fair Park, will be open from 11:00am to 7:30pm. Check below for a schedule for the day. What makes Fair Park Holiday so great is that it’s FREE to all the public! There’s no admission fee and you get to see so much cool stuff. This year the festival has been moved to Thanksgiving weekend, so as soon as you’re done eating some turkey leftovers, skip on over to Fair Park for free fun and Yuletide joy.
Some of the participating museums you may want to visit at a reduced price or “F0 FREEE” include:
The African American Museum
Museum of Nature & Science
Museum of the American Railroad
Texas Discovery Gardens
The Hall of State
The Women’s Museum: An Institute for the Future
The kids will love crafts and activities in Santa’s Workshop, pictures with Santa and live entertainment at the Centennial Building. Saint Nicholas is going to stick around from noon to 5:30pm so get a snapshot with your own camera or purchase a photo button for $5! You’ll also find the Holiday Gift Market inside with an assortment of merchandise including holiday decorations and tasty treats. Holiday concessions will also be available for sale.
While admission is free, parking is likely not. Bring a $10 bill to park inside of the gates or venture out and use the Green Line (DART) to Fair Park Station.
